Interesting model:

You can be a Linus and offer free wireless to all Aliens

You can be a Bill and receive a cut of a charge to all Aliens (Linus surfs
for free)

You can be an Alien and surf for free on Linus hotspots, or pay at Bill

But I think the fee model goes against our grain which is to be entirely
free to users.

I think Wifidog needs to be a federation (like FON) of shared users (so an
ISF user can log into WT hotspot and vice versa). I pitched this to ISF but
they don't think they're ready yet. It will come - the capability is there
if we use RADIUS servers to maintain users and create domain trusts as
necessary. We could even include (authenticate) Wireless Nomad users or
other domains like google users (provided they offer RADIUS).
